The most fundamental type of cat flap, is simply that. A hole is cut in a door and a bendable material is fixed over it to give a bit of some protection from the elements.

Because this option can allow other creatures or cats to enter your home, it isn't at all ideal, though it can be improved on a little by keeping the flap in position by adding a magnetic strip.

Magnetically controlled, infra-red or RF chip models of cat flap, are a step up from the basic magnetic strip variation. With this kind of cat flap, your cat will need to wear a collar featuring an IR, RF chip or magnet. Unless an animal is equipped with one of these special collars, it will not be able to trigger the flap and leave or access your property, therefore preventing some unwanted visitors. Once again this is a relatively basic kind of cat flap, because any other moggy in the neighbourhood that has a similar collar may be able to gain access to your home. RF cat flaps and collar systems are the best version of these devices as they can be programmed by the cat owner to recognise a unique identifier, distinct to your pet. Gaining access is restricted to only your feline friend, resulting in an additional layer of security and control.

The next stage in feline access security is to use the type of cat flap which identifies your cat's micro-chip. The memory of these battery powered cat flaps can be programmed with one or more microchip details (if you have several cats), to provide exclusive access. Whenever your cat is close to the flap, it will unlock and allow just your microchipped pets to enter or exit.

The wherewithal to carry out specific functions in accordance with the time of day, and based on yours and your cat's needs is also a possibility with some of the top-end models of cat flap.

If you are pretty decent at do-it-yourself, putting in a cat flap shouldn't be too much of a challenge, if you have a solid wood door on your home in Windsor. But, if you're intending to fit it into a reinforced PVC door or in a double glazed window, you should ask for outside help. These types of fittings require a professional installation from a reputable cat flap installer or carpenter with the necessary skills and equipment.


Double Glazing Installations - If you hire someone who tries to drill a hole in a double glazed door or window panel to put in your new cat flap, stop them immediately and ask them to leave. A new cat flap cannot be installed into a pre-existing double glazed window pane or door panel. Cutting or drilling into any sort of double glazing will destroy its strength and security, as well as its thermal attributes. In actual fact, it makes your glazing unsound and it should never be attempted.

A dependable Windsor cat flap fitter will carefully take the measurements of your existing pane and order a ready prepared one from a local glazing firm. As a part of its structure this new glazed panel will have a hole pre-cut, which your cat flap can be installed nicely into. This can take a couple of weeks to produce, but it's really the only way to fit a cat flap into a pre-existing double glazed or patio door. Once you've acquired your new panel of glass, the old one can be taken out and the new one installed. It will now be possible to install the cat flap.

uPVC Door Panels - It's perfectly feasible to install a cat flap into a uPVC door. Nonetheless, certain uPVC doors are steel lined for additional security, which can cause some issues. The easiest type of cat flap installation is in doors having a single panel, therefore if you have a uPVC door with slatted vertical panels, it may be cheaper and easier overall to exchange the slats for a one-piece panel.

Wall Installation - If, for either security or aesthetic reasons, you don't wish to have a hole cut into a door, you could always choose to install your cat flap into an outside wall of your home in Windsor. This kind of installment is certainly better left to a specialist, since it requires far more skill and equipment to execute. There are several possibilities for this type of installation, including a straight-through tunnel version, or a right angled (through pillar) configuration. A neat square hole will need to be made through your selected wall, into which is inserted a metal or plastic, square open ended tube. A cat flap of your choice can then be mounted on either end to enable your furry pal to enter and exit as it pleases.

Replacing an Existing Cat Flap in Windsor - If you've already got a cat flap fitted on your door, wall or window, but it is damaged or not functioning properly, the existing hole can hopefully be re-used for the installation of a replacement. Your cat flap fitter should be able to take off the old cat flap, without harming the window, door or wall, and install a new flap for your cat.

If the substitute cat flap is to be mounted into a pre cut hole in a double glazing pane, you must make certain that the existing glass has been manufactured and installed correctly. If it becomes obvious this isn't the case, and corners were cut in the original installation, the panel will need to be taken out and replaced with a new one to avoid any security and safety problems.
